hot vs cold

August 10, 2008

Allison and I have two very different core temperatures. I like to think of mine as normal while she is freakishly cold. 

This plays itself out nearly every day in our house.  If I am sweating, and slightly irritable from my house feeling like a sauna, it means she is just about right.  If she has goosebumps, her feet have turned to human ice blocks, and her lips are blue that means I’m just about right.

There was a time where we would each visit the thermostat every five minutes or so to set our desired temps.  Hers, 77 or higher.  Mine, 73 or lower.  I attempted at one point to set it and then tape it shut, but that didn’t last long.  She got the scissors and we were back to global warming. 

Macy has proven to be a miniature Allison, so I am outvoted right now two to one.  I’m hoping Ava has my core temperature so we can be evenly represented in the climate of our house.

What about you?  What’s your ideal temp setting?
